    You need to ask your probation officer for a transfer under the interstate compact. If your probation officer will not facilitate your transfer, you need to write a letter (file a motion) to the judge, explaining the situation and asking for a hearing. The judge makes the final decision and can order the probation department to either apply for your transfer under the interstate compact or change your probation to unsupervised and to an amount of time so that no interstate compact approval is...

    I'm on the felony drug court board in Summit County and I imagine yours works the same as ours - testing is at a designated spot or perhaps spots in the front range but you can only test where it is approved. There is a method to the drug court madness but it is not for everyone. It is a great opportunity though to change your life so hopefully you can get comfortable with the new place. It is a different approach then Pretrial Services and usually there are no terms that are negotiable. Good luck.

    I agree with Chris. You need to hire an attorney. The consequences of these cases are far reaching and last for a long time so don't mess around with this, hire an attorney.

    Every employer has different policies. There is no general law preventing someone from hiring you. If that was your first offense, you should check and see if you had a deferred judgment and sentence. If you did and the case was ultimately dismissed, you could be eligible to seal your criminal history. Sealing your criminal history would generally prevent most, if not all, potential employers from ever knowing about your case. The short answer though to your question is that there is no clear...

    You may luck out if you sat out the entire year of your revocation; however, you would be wise to hire an attorney if you have not already to help you deal with the DMV. The revocation for the refusal is most likely completely separate from your court case and any consequences that can flow from it but this is nothing to mess around with. I suggest you hire an attorney to figure out your status and help you with the reinstatement process.

  6. Domestic violence charge

    You cannot get the case sealed unless it was dismissed. If you received a deferred judgment and sentence and then successfully completed it, then the case should have dismissed and you may be eligible to seal your criminal history. If you actually received a conviction, then, under the Brady Law, you cannot possess a firearm. You should contact a criminal defense attorney in your area to determine if you can possess a firearm and whether you can petition to seal your criminal history.

  7. Can I travel out of the state of Colorado while on probation for a second misdemeanor DWAI?

    If you have not yet been sentenced, then you are probably on bond which would, in all likelihood, prohibit out of state travel without court permission. I would suggest you consider hiring an attorney to represent you. If that is not possible, you should ask the Court for permission to travel out of state. You should definitely NOT travel out of state without that permission.

    As Mr. Buckley said, you could be facing separate sentencing on those counts depending on what the prosecutor can prove. you should hire a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. do not mess around with this yourself. it is serious.

    His mandatory release date should never change. That is the calculation of all his time but his parole eligibility date and estimated parole date will change.

    Contributing to the delinquency of a minor is not a charge that can be brought in municipal court so you are not being charged with a felony if you are in municipal court.
